Leadership

Leadership is not a song of glamour that birds sing to welcome the morning glow.
Nor is she a ripple wave smile exposed when rivers flow.
She is an infant who desires to grow, her milky teeth are not ready to bite and chew, given a chance she must...

Someone Else’s Song

I am a million, million people
Talking all at once, with voices
Raised in clamour, like maids
At village-wells.

I am a million, million deaths
Pox-clustered, each a drying seed
Someday to be shed, to grow for
Someone else, a...

Worst Day Ever?

Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don't try to convince me that
There's something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Even if
Some goodness does shine through once in a while...

מדינת אשכנז

במדינת אשכנז השקד פורח
במדינת אשכנז מצפים לאורח
לא לשותף
רוחצים ידים בסבון וגם אז
נוגעים מרחוק
לא תוקעים...

Rosalynn

She'd smile, and birds would feel that they no longer
had to sing, or it may be I failed
to hear their song.

Within a crowd, I'd hope her glance might be
for me, but I knew that she was shy, and wished
to be...

For Now

The days resemble one another
the cat’s sharp claws rest
deep in her paws

in the yard the dogs
gnaw a rabbit’s skull
and my shadow grows very long

at night the stars come out of their kennel
I listen to the barking but
I have no...

Nature

I walk down an
old forest trail.
I take each step
on ancient soil.
I look around.
Trees stand tall
above me.
The branches stretch
out with leaves
that cover the sun
from my eyes.
Flowers bloom in
patches on the ground.
The small critters
run around...

Stranger

From whatever country you come,
look at the ruins of the camp.
Think, and do all you can,
so your pilgrimage
be not in vain,
as was not in vain our death…
For you and your children,
the ashes of Auschwitz are
a warning.
Act so that the terrible...

A Poem To A Mother....

Your head is feeling achy, filled with worries and with stress,
sometimes you question if today you truly gave your best.
It throbs and it runs, it hurts and it pounds,
at times you feel that it never calms...
